I am a firm believer that home accessories can contribute to our happiness. Let me give you a descriptive example: I am a jolly good fellow. Almost all the time. But not in the early morning. I am just no morning person (as much as I would like to change it). And sometimes, believe it or not, I can be a tad grouchy in the morning. Now imagine a yummy breakfast is prepared and served. Not just served, but served in the exceptionally happy Donna Wilson tableware. A cute 'Grace' plate smiles at you, a cool bearded chap looks at you, a foxy fox greets you good morning. I mean, can you not smile? Can you not simply be happy?
I am a big fan of Scottish designer Donna Wilson. Nowadays based in London, the fabulous Donna started her career after making odd knitted creatures that were instantly loved by everyone. Donna's trademark are curious creatures that seem to be inhabitants of an enchanted dream world - quirky, cute and oh so lovable. But I not only love her unique designs, I also adore her passion for products that people can connect with. Her studio is committed to making things that the happy customers will treasure and enjoy. Moreover, Donna Wilson focuses on UK based manufacturers and supports local craftsmanship wherever possible.
So, in order to fight my morning blues and crankiness, I've decided to stock up on Donna Wilson plates. My first choice will be sassy 'Grace' and the friendly 'beardy man'. And happy mornings may come! Happy Friday, friends!
